Cheteshwar Pujara is hoping to make a comeback in the test squad of Team India

Cheteshwar Pujara said that he has not given up hopes of making a comeback into the test squad of Team India. Earlier this year, he was sidelined from the national team for the West Indies tour because he failed to perform in the World Test Championship finals against Australia.
The 35-year-old Pujara said that scoring runs in first-class cricket will help him break back into the Indian National Cricket Team.
In an interview with the Sussex Cricket Board, Puji said, "Look, I always try and control the things that I can. It’s always about getting as many runs as possible in whatever games I play."

He also said, "I am still in the scheme of things. So, I hope that the moment I start scoring more runs in first-class games, I will be back on the team. But I will try and be present; I will try and take one game at a time."
On Friday, August 11, while playing for Sussex, Pujara scored 117 not out off 113 balls with 11 fours against Somerset in the England One Day Cup. On the back of his knock, Sussex won the match by four wickets after chasing down 319 with 11 balls to spare.
